Defence and Security Community of Practice: Industry Engagement Seminar
The University of Reading has a long-standing relationship with the Defence and Security Sector. Most recently, we were chosen to provide degree level education to army officers as part of the Army Higher Education Pathway, led by Henley Business School and the School of Politics, Economics, and International Relations; and on 1 April renewed our Memorandum of Understanding and partnership with the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. These existing relationships, and the sizeable network of possible partners in the Thames Valley, offer a unique opportunity to bring together researchers from all relevant disciplines and key stakeholders in the defence and security sector to network and build a Defence and Security Community of Practice, and to identify key challenges for research and innovation, and possible collaborative responses to them.
Join us for a seminar with representatives from four companies based in the Thames Valley to explore the challenges currently facing the Defence & Security sectors which artificial intelligence, machine learning and big data could potentially solve, followed by an informal networking lunch.
- Jonathan Read of Boeing’s Phantom Works International.
- Darrell Jaya-Ratnam of DIEM Analytics.
- Helen Muncie of Thales Cyber & Consulting Services.
- Dick Hemsley of Vedette Consulting.
At the seminar, we will explore some defence and security challenges, explore some research approaches to meet these, from both an industrial and academic perspective.
